Christ is Risen! With that Life giving Good News, we now enter a “week of weeks” for the Easter season. For 7 weeks, we get to continue the Easter celebration. Of course, every Sunday is a “mini-Easter” year round. But for the next 7 weeks, our worship will especially reflect what it means to be an Easter people, now 2000+ years after the Resurrection.
What that also means is that if for some reason you weren’t able to worship with us on Easter Sunday you can still come and share in the celebration. And this truly is Life giving. Just ask any of the 900+ people who were here on Easter morning! Gathering together as God’s Easter people, and receiving our Risen Lord at his table puts all of our joys, sorrows, struggles and celebrations in the proper context. Being in relationship with the Living God gives special meaning and substance to all of our other relationships.
Many, many thanks to all who made Easter morning such a wonderful celebration…the musicians, worship assistants, ushers, Easter breakfast crew, set up and grounds people who made everything so beautiful, Sunday School teachers who were a part of the great Easter Egg Hunt Saturday morning, and all who worshiped with us! Wow.
All I can say is, “Come and see!”
Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!
See you in church. Most gratefully, Pastor Jack Diehl +
